This product really covers my acne spots well; however, it seems to wear off easily. I put powder foundation over it and this seems to help with the fading.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Fakeup:

      As always, when searching for a great concealer, I look for QUALITY above all--whether I can use it for all skin types and whether it will be enough COVERAGE and LAST. And this one has it all. PLUS it moisturizes, so you won't get that dry, pasty creasing that most concealers give. Just make sure you you set with powder ☝

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Fakeup:

      I love this concealer! it has a moisturizer around the actual concealer so it's very moisturizing, especially for the dark circles under my eyes. it covers very well, as well as brightens!

      the only problems I have are that it's pricey, but it has lasted me several months so I would say it's worth it. also, it tends to crease a bit because it's so moisturizing, but as long as you blend very well then it's good!

      definitely repurchasing this!

        Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Fakeup:

        I love this product so much. It has now become a staple in my beauty routine! The lightest shade looks great on my pale self. I have very dry skin and the moisturizing aspect sets this concealer apart from all others. It's the whole reason I bought it in the first place. Other concealed made my under eye area look scaley and patchy, but not this stuff! It looks bright, dewy, and just plain fantastic on. If you have really oily skin then you might find this too greasy, but who knows. Thank you Benefit Cosmetics for making a product for us dry skinned girls! Lifesaver.

                  Hi. I have acne and my acne tends to be dry and most concealers cling to the dryness. Would this be good for making my spots less dry? If it is not full coverage do u recommend using before a full coverage concealer? For example...applying fakeup and then apppling boing?

                    A:

                    Fakeup features a hydrating ring of Vitamin E & apple seed extract to help relieve dryness. It provides natural looking coverage and can be layered underneath additional concealer such as Boi-ing for added coverage. To ensure smooth application, we recommend exfoliating your skin and using a primer prior to concealer such as The POREfessional.

                  I have oily skin and I recently bought this product. The t-zone of my face of my face is quite oily while the sides of my face that are not. I mainly bought this to cover up some of my spots, but if I were to put it on my under eyes would it make it look oily?

                    Though its formula is hydrating, Fakeup features a natural finish and won't leave skin feeling or looking greasy or oily. It is ideal to cover dark under eye circles, and it works great to cover up any other skin imperfections, too!
